GAS­TRO TOURS

Food and Travel (UK) - - 200 th Issue -

When you get back from hol­i­day, the first thing your friends ask about is the food, which is why we were the first ti­tle in the UK to com­bine both top­ics in 1997. Gas­tro tours of­fer a unique way to im­merse your­self in the cul­ture of a new des­ti­na­tion. Of­ten done on foot (we loved Gothen­burg’s tour by Mat­van­drin­gen), they’re a fan­tas­tic way to meet lo­cal pro­duc­ers and learn all about re­gional spe­cial­i­ties, while se­cur­ing you a ta­ble at the best restau­rants. Ac­cord­ing to In­trepid Travel the big­gest change since it started of­fer­ing gas­tro tours in 2012 is that the most popular des­ti­na­tions are now fur­ther afield: Ja­pan, Sri Lanka and In­dia are the top three, as op­posed to Euro­pean hot spots. We’ve be­come more aware of the nu­ances of re­gional Asian cui­sine and are hun­gry to try it cooked by lo­cals, with au­then­tic in­gre­di­ents.
